If you are looking for an elegant, classic Chestnut Hill home in a superb, picturesque setting that's turnkey, then look no further than 22 West Bells Mill Rd. This fabulous home has been meticulously designed by Tallulah & Bird and lovingly restored by RCC in 2023. This home sits on an elevated parklike setting located in the Wissahickon Valley of Chestnut Hill, a short walk to historic downtown Chestnut Hill with superb galleries and culinary venues, along with the Wissahickon Valley trails for biking, walking, and hiking. Upon entering the home, you are greeted by a formal double door entryway that leads to a receiving vestibule to welcome guests. The first floor boasts an oversized living room with a working fireplace. This elegant room is flooded with light from a wall of European styled double French doors that lead to an outdoor patio area. Connected to the living room is the formal yet inviting dining area that also has a working fireplace and a continuation of European French doors that overlook the light filled backyard. If you are a chef or enjoy entertaining, then look no further. The kitchen has been completely renovated to include custom cabinetry, a large, walk-in pantry with custom shelving, commercial exhaust system, custom exhaust vent hood, BlueStar 48" commercial range, 4 Fisher & Paykel Dishwasher drawers, GE Monogram refrigerator/freezer columns, wine refrigerator, unlacquered brass faucets and a 11+' island with a center dining/seating area that is ready for your family and friends. Additionally, the dedicated wine and coffee bar can be enjoyed from early morning till late evenings. Located off the kitchen is a free-standing solarium/greenhouse that serves as an amazing bonus space for entertainment. This first floor also includes an office/bedroom with built in bookcases and a conveniently located oversized powder room. The federal styled staircase with a ½ landing and window leads to the second-floor with 4 bedrooms and 4 ensuite bathrooms. The primary bedroom being the grandest of all four bedrooms, with vaulted 12' ceilings, oversized ensuite bathroom with double sink, soaking tub, and separate shower, as well as two fireplaces, are many of the wonderful features of this primary suite. However, the gigantic walk-in closet with custom wall to wall fit outs by California Closets makes this a showstopper. This closet is truly meant for the clothes enthusiast and is complete with a center island for folding clothes, additional storage, and a charming fireplace. The remaining three bedrooms all have newly renovated custom ensuite bathrooms, spacious closest and plenty of windows and sunlight. The hallway includes an oversized laundry closet with front load washer/dryer and folding table. The finished lower level with separate entry delivers additional living space that can hybridize as a second living room, play space, gym or all three. This level also has an additional powder room, separate dry storage room with ample storage for all your extras and two additional refrigerators/freezers. The utility room comes complete with a second set of new high efficiency front load washer and dryer. HVAC is brand new and features two heating and A/C zones. This is an excellent opportunity to own a turn key historic home in a fantastic neighborhood.
